SOURCE: How do I adjust the

Hello. To adjust the depth of the nail you have to increase or decrease the air pressure from the compressor. Look at the compressor and you will see a knob or dial that you can turn to increase or decrease the air pressure. Do this adjustment in small increments testing the nailer by driving nails into a scrap of the same material you will be driving the nails into on the actual job. Increasing the pressure will drive the nail deeper and decreasing the pressure will drive the nail less deep. Joe

Bostitch rn45b wount drive the nails in all the way in and I don't see any adjustment like on my rn46


The bostitch nailer rn45 has an adjuster for depth on the front. Rotate the black knob for proper depth. If adjuster does not have an effect, most likely the driver oring is worn. Ez check for worn driver oring. Open side door and remove nails. Point nose of gun up then down again. If the driver moves up and down, replace the oring. The driver should stay in the upper position at all times. Good luck.

Bostich RN-46 seems to be over sinking the nails even went set to low depth


Adjust the air pressure on the regulator to about 90 lbs. or lower. maybe higher than 90 but that should help you set the depth.

SETTING SHORT NAIL DEPTH


If you have tried the depth adjuster lowest setting and still too high, try lowering the pressure to the gun. The shorter nail does not give enough resistance allowing the driver to slam against the lower bumper inside of the gun (made of rubber or vinyl) forcing it to compress. There might be a rubber protector that installs on the safety foot of the gun that will space the gun away from the work another fraction of an inch. Finally, you could use a thin piece of wood under the safety foot /nose to space the gun away from the work. Good luck

How do i control the depth the nail shoots in a bostitch coil nailer


The bostitch nailer pictured along along with your question is a RN46 roofing coil nailer. It has a dial on the front of the nose for adjusting depth. Some older nailers (roofing nailers) do no have a means of adjusting so were set at the factory for best performance. The question of depth usually comes up when lower bumper fails and the nail is driven too deep. Easy test. Remove nails and find a very soft piece of wood. Dry fire the gun against soft wood and measure how deep the driver is entering the wood. Harder test. Remove the head and use any handy tool to push driver down to bottom. Measure how far the driver extends past nose (should be about 1/8 to 3/16). If more, replace the lower bumper. Good luck

Adjust nail depth 350 mag framing nailer


To adjust the depth of the nail on the coil 350, refer to the parts list listed below.

The safety foot, refrence # 430 or part # 904930 has a slot head bolt. Back off the bolt and move the safety foot down or up and retighten. If however the adjustment will not move enough to keep the driver from setting the nail too deep, then suspect that the bumper, refrence # 130 or part # 897337 has failed and is allowing the driver to travel down the cylinder further than normal. Easy fix. Remove the head and pull out the cylinder and driver to change the bumper. Good luck

I have been installing a treated pine deck, but the nails are been driven in to far, i have tried adjusting the pressure from the compressor but have had no luck is there a depth adjustment on the gun?


Yes, there is a depth adjustment. Most of the Bostitch models have a push button on the left side near where the nails come out. With the air unplugged, push in this button and you can slide the head assembly up or down to make your adjustment. Slide it out for less depth. It sounds like maybe yours is fully seated, providing the maximum depth.

I have a RN45B roof nail gun that wont sink the nails all the way. How do I adjust depth of nails?


The adjustment is inside the magazine there are 3 setting depending on the length of nail. Here is a PDF of the owners manual for that tool, the procedure to set the depth is on page 6. http://www.bostitch.com/catalog_images/web_pdf/103280.pdf
If after setting the depth you are still having issues you can adjust the pressure on your compressor. The operating pressure for that unit is 70 - 100 psi. Do not exceed 100 psi and remember to disconnect your hose before loading/unloading or making adjustments to your nailer.

I have dewalt dc618, nail doesn't goes all the way in, please help?


Below find information on how to adjust for depth, however if you have already made adjustment then check for broken tip on driver blade. The blade is not expensive and available from dewalt service center.

Please note the following from manual:

Adjusting Depth
The depth that the fastener is driven can be adjusted using
the depth adjustment wheel (C) on the side of the tool.
WARNING: To reduce risk of serious injury from
accidental actuation when attempting to adjust depth,
ALWAYS:
• Remove battery pack.
• Engage contact trip lock-off.
• Avoid contact with trigger during adjustments.
1. To drive the nail shallower, rotate the depth adjustment
wheel (C). There are twelve depth settings, 1 being the
shallowest and 6 being the deepest.
2. To sink a nail deeper, rotate the depth adjustment
wheel (C) to a higher setting.

Hitachi nailer does not sink nails completely, no matter what size nail.


You must have broken tip or out of adjustment. Easy to check. Remove nails, and push safety against scrap air hose or rubber to absorb blow and squeeze trigger. Piston will stay in the down position until your release safety (on some models you will need to pull back on feeder sligtly). While piston is down examine the end of the driver for nice squared off tip protruding about 1/4 inch beyond nose. If no tip or looks broken, replace driver. If tip looks complete, adjust for more depth. Good luck
